SARATOGA SPRINGS — Murder in Spa City - the seventh installment in author David K. Wilson’s Sam Lawson Mystery series, brings a wisecracking Texas detective to Saratoga Springs where he is pulled into a murder mystery.

Wilson is originally from a small town in East Texas, but he’s lived in upstate New York for more than 20 years and currently lives in Saratoga Springs.

“Most of the books in this series take place in Texas, but I’ve been wanting to bring Sam to Saratoga Springs for quite a while,” Wilson said. “A colorful character in a colorful city.”

The story is set against the city’s many historic landmarks, as well as the bustling nightlife during horseracing season.

In the new novel, Sam has come to Saratoga Springs to attend a wedding, but is soon thrust into the murder investigation of a local wealthy businessman. It isn’t long before he realizes the key suspects are every member of the victim’s dysfunctional family.

The book is released this month, and for more information about Wilson, as well as how to get a copy of the book, go to:
